ABOUT ALOE BAY
The purpose of this project is to develop a “town center” master plan and urban design which will inform the development of Aloe Bay district. This project will be paid for with federal funding from the Department of the Treasury under the Resources and Ecosystems Sustainability, Tourist Opportunities, and Revived Economies of the Gulf Coast States Act of 2012 (RESTORE Act). The grant is part of the State of Alabama’s RESTORE Act Direct Component funds that promote economic development and tourism.
The Aloe Bay project includes the planning and implementation of a mixed-use district with public facilities to enhance economic, tourism, and resident opportunities for the Town of Dauphin Island. The project will be implemented in three phases. Phase I includes planning and conceptual design of Aloe Bay along with a Meeting Space Study for the entire Island. Phase II will include design and engineering, permitting, development of project costs and preparation of construction plans and documents. Finally, Phase III is the construction period of the project.
